If you use grub, prepare to abandon it in favor of either the binary version or lilo, which has a binary blob anyway... From what I understand, it's either impossible or just extremely impractical... something about initializing memory tables or the IOMMU being required before you can switch to 64-bit mode... I've been up for almost 24 hours (without properly preparing) so I'm a little fuzzy right now... -- "If there's one thing we've established over the years, it's that the vast majority of our users don't have the slightest clue what's best for them in terms of package stability." -- Gentoo Developer Ciaran McCreesh
